Eduardo's Injury Concern

The Club can confirm that following the incident during Saturday’s match at Birmingham City, Eduardo has fractured his left fibula and sustained an open dislocation of his ankle joint in the same leg.

He was immediately taken to Selly Oak Hospital in Birmingham where he underwent surgery on Saturday evening. The operation was successful and Eduardo was transferred to a London-based hospital on Sunday afternoon.

Earlier today (Monday 25th February), the Orthopaedic surgeon and Arsenal medical staff assessed the extent of the damage and possible time scale for a full recovery.

All being well, Eduardo will have his leg in plaster and using crutches for the next six to eight weeks. After that time, partial weight-bearing exercises will be scheduled into a slow rehabilitation process.

It is hoped that Eduardo will be running again in six months time and making a full recovery after nine months.

Eduardo will be released from hospital in a few days.

The Arsenal medical team would like to take this opportunity to thank Birmingham City FC for their assistance on the day as well as the surgical and ward staff on S2 at Selly Oak Hospital for their expert medical care.

In addition, and on behalf of Eduardo, the Club would like to thank everyone for their many touching messages of support.

The Way of Christian Redemption- God prepares both us and the way before us

Luke 1:67-80

The Power of God's Redemption (v68-71)
  • gives us hope- God spoke, He remembered, and honored His Word (v70).
  • provides us the power to rise above our enemies and those who hate us (v71).

The Purpose of God's Redemption (v72-75)
  • magnifies His mercy (v72) in that while we were still sinners Christ died for us.
  • provides us the setting in which we could serve Him without fear-in holiness and righteousness-for God's glory (v74-75).

The People Redeemed (v76-80)
  • often times the tough life in desert is the preparatory stage for His work in future (v80) - the need for encouragement
  • seems to be alone in serving the Lord at times (v76b) - the need for encouragement
  • but as surely as the sun rises every morning the Lord does work His way into the heart of man- in ours to be able to do His work (v77), and the heart of those who sit in darkness (v79 NASB).
  • God's work can wait because He's more interested in working in me (v80); He'll unleash you when ready.
  • God has made in us the ability to grow and be strong!
All these were planned out before we were even born (v66): I'm known by my Father, and nurtured by His Spirit for all His work which has only 1 objective- that all may know God is merciful (v72 & 78).

"Voters don't decide issues, they decide who will decide issues."

George Will

Philosophy of Time

"I believe God created time for our benefit. Unlike God, we will not be able to handle life without time. Time allows for change, growth, healing; and also for virtues like hope and forgiveness to be meaningful. However, instead of applying the benefits of time, we are often enslaved by time today. We sometimes have become so time-oriented that time (or, "being on time") becomes more important than the "event" itself."

Rev. Yee Tham Wan

Ask Strategic Questions for 2008 Msia General Elections

We all know that once in a few years we are given the opportunity to vote. Why vote? It has no effect on the outcome some say.
One vote alone may not count but many votes together becomes a voice to be reckoned with. Let your voice be heard.
This election, more so than others is a vital election because we are at a cross roads. If we get it right we will prosper; if we get it wrong, we will suffer as we have seen in our neighboring countries.

To help you decide please ponder these issues:

  1. Do you think our politicians in power are corrupt?
  2. Do you think our civil service is corrupt?
  3. Do you think they are incompetent?
  4. Do you think the people in power sets themselves above the law?
  5. Do you think our leadership has lost its way?
  6. Do you think we are getting more & more divided by race & religion?
  7. Do you think we have a questionable justice system?
  8. Do you think that they are wasting our wealth?
  9. Do you think our children will suffer more?
  10. Do you want to see change?

If you say yes to 3 or more of these issues, don't you think we need change? YOU CAN MAKE CHANGE HAPPEN!!!
Yes we can make our vote count! We owe it to ourselves and to our children and to their children.
Malaysia Boleh! Make it happen for ours and our children's future.
